Amazing comfort with a cushioned heal for descents and bouldering, these climbing shoes are great for newcomers to climbing.
Built using the same super-comfortable, semi-asymmetric last found in their top-selling shoe, Boreal's Alpha Climbing Shoe is perfect for beginners who are finding their feet.
Their low-tension integrated rand system relieves pressure on your foot, the one-piece construction providing durable support that retains its shape over time.
The unlined microfibre upper feels comfortable next to the skin, and they also use Boreal's Cushioned Heel System (CHS) which places an EVA shock absorbing insert under the heel to cushion and protect the foot.
They provide the ideal blend of edging support and long-lasting friction, due to the medium stiffness midsole paired with the sticky and durable Zenith Quattro rubber outsole.
EVA heel pad cushioning
Fast doublestrap closure system
Special anti-deformation, slip-lasted midsole
Padded CHS heel for extra comfort
Ultra sticky BOREAL® Zenith Quattro outsole (4-4.5mm thickness depending on size)
Suitable for climbing courses, indoor and outdoor training, and long routes
I got recommended these shoes by the sales assistant after explaining I’d be using mainly for indoor climbing but some outdoors as well. I used them for the first time on outdoor trad climbs and once the smooth bottoms became rough from the rocks I could not fault them, I trust my feet aren’t going to slip away from underneath me which was a huge confidence issue that I had with my old shoes, also I can wear them for prolonged periods due to their comfort.
Excellent buy !!
